DHP Emily Convertible Linen Futon : perfect for my studio

Looks great, feels horrible. I purchased this and the companion chaise, they look great are easy to assemble but thats where the good stuff ends, they are remarkably uncomfortable, i mean they hurt to sit on, i am a 25 year army retiree and have slept on rocks that were more comfortable, i’m not trying to be funny just trying to advise people before they purchase this product, so in closing i would say if you are purchasing this product to look at go for it but if you are ever going to sit on this you have been warned.

And an extra gold star for great customer service. I purchased this lounger through amazon based upon the great price and customer reviews. I was a bit skeptical, never having purchased furniture online before. However, we have been utilizing it for a few weeks, and we think the lounger is great. And when i say ‘we,’ i am including our two cats, each of which has dedicated its life to ‘lounging,’ so they should know. It is comfortable for sitting with legs up to watch tv, and when fully reclined, there is plenty of room for napping. With two cats on you, as well. The ups delivery man was great. The weather was hot, and the box was big and heavy. He carried it up to the front porch, and when i intercepted him and asked ‘could you just put that in the front room for me, please?’.

Futon looks nice, but isn’t that comfortable. . The futon has been a incredibly useful purchase in our home. It’s used frequently, both for sleeping and sitting, and the style fits perfectly in our home. One of my favorite parts is the separated backs that lift up and down. However, i did have a few issues with this futon. The first is that the futon has a zipper on the bottom to store things in. Unfortunately this arrived completely torn apart for us. The zipper still opens and closes fine, but the actual fabric where the things would be stored in is just a giant rip.

Great for a college dorm room. I ordered it for my college dorm room, and all my friends use it to chill in. Plus, they like to stay the night and sleep on it. It is pretty confortable, easy to put together, and looks nice. I would get it again in a heartbeat.

Ordered from amazon and received the chaise in a few days with prime shipping. The chaise is safely wrapped in a two layer box. This is not very heavy, i moved it to my room on the second floor by myself. Installation was super easy, done in less than 10 min. My only complain is, there is a small hole on the side of the chaise. We did not ask for an exchange just because it’s on the side against the wall and it’s too much trouble. But it would be good if the manufacture can do a better qc next time.

DHP Emily Convertible Linen Futon, Gray : Reading some of the other reviews, i was worried about the futon. When it arrived, the box was damaged and had holes ripped in it. When i took the futon out (carefully) there was no damage. All of the parts to put the futon together were in the zippered pouch on the bottom of the futon. Instructions and assembly were very easy to follow. It doesn’t take long at all. The cushions are aligned perfectly. I bought this to fill an extra room that we have, so i’m not too worried about the comfort level.

I bought this chaise for $180. Free shipping and handling from amazon prime.I bought the matching futon($150) also for my apartment and i’m very satisfied. I love that, along with the futon, it converts into a queen size bed. Everything is aligned and everything is undamaged. The seating is firm but comfortable.

I ordered this with the matching sofa because we moved across the country and didn’t bring our old sofa and needed something quickly. Putting it together was a snap, and it looked pretty nice for about two weeks. I am an average weight woman, and i have a 3 year old. We are the only ones who have used this, but after two weeks it started showing signs of wear. We have now had it less than 2 months and you can tell by looking at it which spots are used most often. The fabric stretches very easily and will lose its shape quickly. It is neither very comfortable nor very uncomfortable. I have not attempted to sleep on it. If you need a space filler for a room that is not used often, this would work.

I live in a small one bedroom. I live in a small one bedroom apartment, so i wanted a couch that could turn into a bed for guests. I couldn’t have picked a better/cheaper option. I feel so good about this purchase. The back is adjustable, and the great thing is it looks like it’s worth hundreds of dollars. If you’re debating on going with this one, go for it.

I am elderly with ra and by my self i put the legs on. . I wasn’t sure how it would fit in my small living space but fits. Now if i have company at least they can have a place to sleep. It looks exactly how the picture looks. For sure it is growing on me. I$150 is a lot for a pensionaire to spend on furniture but the more i sit on it the more i think i made a good purchase.

After my oldest son left for college, my second and third sons decided to bunk together in a room. We got loft beds so they could create their own ‘man cave’ below, and they chose this item, pooled their money, and put this under one of their beds. It was great for a while, but just after the return window closed, a section of the cushion began to come apart in the stitching of one of the seams. You get what you pay for, and i had the boys read the reviews before they made the purchase. They’ve continued to keep it in their room, and the split in the seam has grown bigger. But then again, boys are super hard on furniture, so it probably would have happened sooner or later. Neither one of them has slept on it, but my oldest son returned home for a visit, and after a night on this futon, he declared our comfy sofa was a much better option. This futon has mostly served the purpose of a hangout piece of furniture. My 15 year old sits on it while doing homework and playing guitar.

Overall good purchase, some fabric issues. I would purchase this again. At first, i did not want to shell out the $189 for this futon and almost bought a cheaper one, but i am glad i chose this higher quality futon. It looks really nice in my dorm room and i hope to use it in my first apartment. My only disappointment is that the fabric was not pulled tightly on the tufted areas on one half of the futon, so there is some puckering of the fabric (this can be seen in the pictures i added). It still looks nice, but if they pulled the fabric tighter it would look like a million bucks. It is comfortable to sit on and sleep on. It’s on the stiff side, but i like that. A standard blow up twin mattress fits perfectly on top of it when the back is reclined. If this were more than $200, i would return it for the fabric issues.

For the price i don’t think you can beat the quality. I think some of the reviews are because people think a futon is meant to be slept on regularly which isn’t the case at all. I wanted a futon to welcome guest and make them feel comfortable to visit but uncomfortable enough to make them not want to overstay their visit. It was easy to put together – doesn’t look cheap at all – and i’d say its a nice medium sized couch perfect for studios like mine. I’m 5’11 and it hits comfortably about 3-4 inches below my shoulder line (right at the neck if you slouch). Its study and provides support but it is not a lazyboy-cupholder-puffy-recliner feel by any means.

I might have given this a 4 or even 5 star review except for one glaring deficiency. If you roll towards the edge of the bed (what would normally be the wall side of the couch placement, you are suddenly cantilevered over a non-supported section and find yourself rolling towards the floor. We’re talking a million dollar lawsuit here for some older or disabled person who might be injured and find themselves pinned between the now down-sloped mattress and the wall. This has happened to me twice so far but fortunately my reflexes are good and i woke up and reverse rolled my way back to stability. So the big concern for me is the large shearing force exerted on the bolts holding the back legs in place when that happens. I don’t think they could take too much of this. A nine inch pile of hardcover books placed in a paper bag (strapped with packing tape) and rubberized kneeling pad slid in on top of it. With this in place under the middle back section, voila.

Great for a college dorm room. I ordered it for my college dorm room, and all my friends use it to chill in. Plus, they like to stay the night and sleep on it. It is pretty confortable, easy to put together, and looks nice. I would get it again in a heartbeat.

I couldn’t be happier with my futon sofa bed. It’s very sturdy, comfortable (although a bit on the hard side, it’s excellent for bad backs). A friend bought one from tui home and paid close to $1000 for almost same one. Bonded leather is very nice and easy to clean. Quick delivery, easy assembly.

Good product with bad defect. . Hi, dear seller , i have got the futon today, and i installed it, but when i examined the surface, i found there is a big scratch, it is very obvious. I promise it was already there when i opened it. But i have to say i do not want to return it, because it is too heavy and i like it. I hope i can get some refund for that defect.

    Encased in a cloth covering. All tools to put it together were included. I simply took less than 10 minutes. The gray linen fabric seems high quality. It is exactly what i hoped for.

        The futon itself is not very comfortable, but if you have a budget like me, it adds seating to your place. When it is flat, it adds a decent amount of space for one person to sleep, but again, you will want a few blankets underneath you if you want to be semi-comfortable.

        This is awesome for like the first year. This is awesome for like the first year. Then the lack of quality starts to show. The cushion is not the greatest and the springs will eventually start to poke through making it super uncomfortable to sit on. The design is really great though and the price is what really won me over.

    Would give it 4 stars, except they sent me the wrong color. I ordered vanilla but received grey. The product itself is nice, though. It’s a little on the firm side, but i like it.

    It was delivered on time right to our door via fedex. It took 10 mins to put it together, it looks and feels great. We plan to add a few pillows and a nice blanket to dress it up. It does feel a bit firm, so 4 stars instead of 5. Hopefully i can update this in a few months with some more positive feedback.
